It’s official: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
is set for PS3, 360, and PC launch in 2010. Thankfully we’re finally approaching 2010 instead of just talking about it from afar, so all these game announcements don’t seem too much like distant dreams anymore.
The sequel to Dead Men
is said to take some inspiration from documentaries and user-generated content for a more realistic experience. How does this translate for the game, you say? I don’t think I’ll have to explain much further after you take a look at the two teaser trailers below that were released fairly recently. I don’t know about you, but that’s already got me convinced to picking up the game.
